DEBIAN NEWBIE TIP #17 from Will Trillich <email@example.com>
Why is TELNET considered spawn of Satan? Because every keystroke
sent by you, is transmitted -- clear as a bell -- across the
ether. Anyone can sniff your network packets and see what you're
typing -- passwords, love letters, cold fusion blueprints...
It's as secure as shouting from the rooftops. Everyone can see!
